Comment: my first contact with Ludo G. Maas` music was probably related through No-Source imprint. The artist comes from the Netherlands and as it can be seen at the Bandcamp site the hiatus by the artist did last five and a half year. Welcome back again! This 8-notch outing is the first swallow of Maas´ three-part EP trilogy. Indeed, the whole embraces the extended play format because the compositions are quite short extending to the three minute exactly at their longest point. The Flemish indie, folk and electronic music mixed scene is sometimes conveyed with a loose term, duyster, and I can remember one artist (Wixel) from within it who did a similar trick. However, the music is great over there (it is not surprising with regard to Maas` previous releases, though). Firstly, the issue contains technically very interesting threads yet the result is boosted even twice due to an emotional and emotive impact behind it. I have to admit it must be considered even an epic and cinematic one here and there (for instance, Dielman, Lights of Tomorrow). It might be I have listened to albums of 2018 a little but it seems to be the first one for me to be a serious one. I even got MGMT`s Little Dark Age as a vinyl but it is just an eunuchised flicker (read it as a way too calculated product) in comparison to it. The emotion and the sense of freedom are one of the most important aspects with regard to the music. And as a consequence of it – the product does not have them or does have just a scarce bit. I guess Lao Tzu would have listened to it in his austere mountain hut. In a word, the start was very promising – let's wait for the next one.

Comment: nula.cc`s East by Rail was one of the favourite albums in 2017. Concrete sounds were mixed up with artificial ones in a way to conjure up unforgettable synergy from within the initial parts. The sum of its particles was exceeded by the whole amount. Similarly to the Prague, the Czech Republic based project`s previous issue Fall To Earth should be listened in the mode while all nearby windows and doors are closed because otherwise the listener is foreclosed to evaluate the issue`s intellectual impact while its functional impact is implemented though. Because of getting well resonated with the surrounding ambient you have to admit the latter goal is fulfilled. In comparison to East By Rail the result seems to be more reserved and hazy, it is quite hard to find access to it. You can hear vague sounds coming in and out and then alternate unobtrusively and being traded for other hazy progressions. However, my senses got finally moved at Stigmata which is a vague yet haunting drone/ambient track being spiced up by remote clanks and an accidental tittle-tattle. But the listener should not forget the project`s goal as an organic chain of different representations. It is just an artsy shift from one point to another one. Indeed, points which came thereafter were Monumentum, and Points On A Map. In a word, map nula.cc`s trajcetory.
